"The Recovery Works! Committee is made up of members of the recovery community who are  interested in planning the events and activities that will take place during National Recovery Month and throughout the year. These events gather the recovery community to promote the societal  benefits of treatment for substance use disorders, celebrate people in recovery, and promote  the message that recovery in all its forms is possible." 




The Governor of the state of Minnesota has proclamed September 2013 RECOVERY MONTH.





"The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has released a new definition of addiction highlighting that addiction is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavioral problem involving too much alcohol, drugs, gambling or sex. This the first time ASAM has taken an official position that addiction is not solely related to problematic substance use."
